2022 Fisker Ocean SUV
The first Fisker Ocean models were due to arrive in late 2021, or early 2022 at the latest. Apparently Fisker has achieved a “strategic global and local supply chain” with the expectation that it will produce more than a million cars between 2020 and 2027.
The Fisker Ocean SUV will be launched soon, and with more than one electric car entering the market, Fisker will need to offer something special. Because capturing the hearts and minds of drivers will not be easy.
The Fisker has a lot to offer, including a solar-equipped roof, 350 miles of range, recycled materials, and a price tag under $40,000. While there aren’t too many details about the car, here’s everything we know about the Fischer Ocean so far
Fisker Ocean Features
The Ocean Extreme and One models are set to include the Fisker Intelligent Pilot Autonomous Driver Assistance System, which is designed to enhance drive safety and comfort on the road. The car is powered by a digital radar system, which is made up of front and rear radar sensors, ultrasonic sensors, five external cameras and an end camera to monitor driver alertness.
Fisker claims this car system can better distinguish between objects and pedestrians than analog radar and with greater accuracy to boot. It is capable of detecting objects of different sizes moving at different speeds, rather than one large obstacle.
Features mentioned by the automaker include emergency braking, collision warning, lane assist, speed assist, lane departure avoidance, and traffic signal recognition. It also gets 360-degree 3D surround view, door opening warnings, parking spot finder, adaptive cruise control and automatic parking functionality.
Fisker Ocean price in USA
The Fisker Ocean is set to be priced starting at $37,499, with the mid-trim Ocean Ultra starting at $49,999, and the more premium Ocean Extreme starting at $68,889. Fisker is set to offer Ocean Key through a flexible leasing program, which is secured with an initiation and activation fee of $2,999.
Fisker Ocean Speed
The Ocean has some pretty solid performance for a car of its size, or at least that’s what Fisker can tell based on the specs released so far. All these models will have two motors, one on each axle, while there will be two more four wheel drive variants
Fisker’s most powerful model is the Ocean Extreme, which packs in 550 horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. The car won’t break any records, but it’s an impressive time. After all it’s beyond just the performance model Tesla Model Y EV, which accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
The Ocean Ultra has 540 horsepower and speeds a little under 3.9 seconds, while the entry-level Ocean Sport has 275 horsepower and a 0 to 60 time of 6.9 seconds.
While the fisker Ocean Sport only gets a single front wheel motor, the Ultra and Extreme will offer a dual-motor AWD setup.
Fisker Ocean: Battery and Range
The Ocean will have a very heavy battery pack, which will pack at least 80 kWh. It can be charged via the Electrified Americas network at speeds of up to 350kW, and will restore a range of 200 miles in just about 30 minutes.
The entry-level Ocean Sport will get a range of 250 miles, uses the same lithium-ion phosphate battery that Tesla puts in its lower-range electric cars. Despite the reduction in energy density, they are significantly cheaper and more stable than battery alternatives, and these EVs do not require nickel or cobalt.
Meanwhile, the Ocean Ultra car and the Ocean Xtreme car will offer 340 and 350 miles respectively. These use lithium-manganese-cobalt-oxide batteries.
Fisker’s 0 also promises that the solar panels in the Ocean’s roof will offer an additional 1,000 miles of range each year, which averages 2.7 miles each day. However the amount you generate will obviously depend on the local weather and climate. Because someone living in New England is not going to get as much sun as someone living in Southern California.
Fisker previously talked about his work researching solid state battery technology, which is essentially the holy grail in the EV world. If successful (and it’s huge), Fisker claims the battery can refill a range of 500 miles in a minute. Pretty Bold Claims, But Don’t Expect It To Be Anytime Soon
6 best electric vehicle charging station

Do Electric Cars Lose Charge When Parked?
Electric vehicles lose charge when parked, although this is minimal, it can add up over time. Green Car Reports recommends that you charge your battery to at least 80% before you park the car. However, all EV experts agree that the vehicle must have at least 50% battery when put into storage.
Why do people buy electric cars?
Electricity to recharge an electric car is cheaper than the cost of gasoline. If an electric car recharges at home overnight, there’s no wasting time and money, looking to get gas, or charge at a more expensive and less convenient public charging station.
